Easyjet from Soutthend Airport decided to change their schedule the second half of September, they won't fly to Berlin on the Friday now, ended up having to fly Thursday and booking an additional night. Oops! Extra night of playing tourist anyway


Diogo, i'm heading the sub 4 route too. Good Luck

Robin, it's not far from Leigh Station. Maybe a mile or 2. Cab would be cheap enough i reckon

I think i may have been one of the first to hit the diversion put in place when the tide came in. Have to say, the little triangle pieces on the lamp posts were too far away from each other and i felt the route was clearly marked and feel i lost the route.. A few people followed my path back to the promenade which resulted in an additional third of a mile. 

Not a great amount but i do feel a bit responsible for the few that followed me and may have run further than they needed to. The diversion could have done with a few marshalls but i got a PB anyway.


I really enjoyed the out'n'back route. and will be entering again

Thats exactly where I'm up to.

Fingers crossed, My german is awful

I completed my registration through the link on the email.

Dont remember anything about a registration code? Is that the bit where it said about redeeming something or other?
